I bought this car for $1800 cash in a hurry because I needed something quick at the time. Never dreamed it would still be running. The car saved my life once in a highway situation where many cars would've gone out of control---it held the road. Never had a breakdown or ever had to call AAA. Most reliable car. Got 24 mpg burning 100% gasoline. Normal maintenance is all I ever spent on it. Great car! Taking off from a red light was always out front without even trying. Solid, holds the road. A champion.
reliability, ease of driving in all kinds of traffic and weather. Good on ice. (passed many newer cars and suvs in snow and ice). Inexpensive and minimal repairs--just the expected usual maintenance. Brakes lasted and lasted. Had to replaced a window motor--that was the only non-maintenance repair.
